Adaptive Band Balancing Appears Awesome

Just wanted to chime in on a hidden feature that’s not even noted in the Unleashed documentation (you need to review the ZoneDirector documentation).  Ever since upgrading to 200.8, I noticed the Adaptive Band Balancing setting in Services/Radio Control.  I have enabled this feature and consistently notice more clients on the 5GHz band compared to previously using only the Percent of clients on 2.4GHz radio setting.  While I’ve yet to get a picture of this long term at this time, it appears to be working as promised and just wanted to make more people aware of it.

Cheers.

I have this enabled and it pushes more devices to the 2.4ghz network.

Do you tend to have reduced signal coverage, which, in this case, would mean 2.4GHz might be better for these devices?

Nope. I have a fairly small home running 2 R510's. I'm close to just disconnecting my AP's and going back to my ISP's router. Much better performance.
